Alice in Wonderland decor in 5 easy steps…

REALLY looking forward to Tim Burton’s take on Alice in Wonderland, in 3-D. With one week from release, Gadora says bring it….

Thought I’d do a little wOnderlust round-up and help you pull a little rabbit out of your very own mad hat. “Read the directions and directly you will be directed in the right direction.”

1. Must start with tea party. Riddle me this: who could possibly do AIW better than MacKenzie Childs? Their hand-painted black and white “Courtly Check” dinner sets the mood just right, and is made right here in the United States. “You might just as well say that “I like what I get” is the same thing as “I get what I like!”

2. “Why is a raven like a writing desk?” A fresh take on the Bombe chest with two for your viewing pleasure.

Another option is offered by Austin’s own AustinModern, though already sold. See my sad face?

3. Lighting that comes alive. “Curiouser and curiouser!” This design from Aqua Gallery might revolt from your ceiling.

4. A little frivolity. “If I had a world of my own, everything would be nonsense. Nothing would be what it is, because everything would be what it isn’t. And contrary wise, what is, it wouldn’t be. And what it wouldn’t be, it would. You see?” Gadora is digging Monjojo’s mojo. Here the Sao Paulo artist Andreia M. created a colorful original illustration in ink, digital coloring and collage and it’s creepy, in a really sweet way.

5. A clock. “Oh my ears and whiskers, how late it’s getting!” Don’t be late for your very important date with Mark Avis’ “Cronus” sculptural steel clock which stands at 7 feet tall. His meticulous use of materials, may make him a mad metal genius. And according to Cheshire the Cat we’re all mad, “ Oh, you can’t help that. We’re all mad here. I’m mad. You’re mad… You must be. Or you wouldn’t have come here.”
